I got my Flight Jacket on Saturday, but I ordered it too short! The wife has claimed it as her own, and I have placed another order. Now. I wait another 4 weeks. Like getting 2 gifts on my birthday, even though one ended up going to another person!

Thanks to Paul for his outstanding customer service and an excellent product. I got the 20* Flight Jacket TQ and got to test it out last night in the White Mountains of NH. The quilt is very high quality and light weight which is exactly what I was looking for. It kept me nice and warm though the mid-night chill and is quite comfortable. I would happily recommend these products to anyone, and I'm looking forward to saving up some money and getting an UQ to match! Thanks Paul.
I just ran across my photos from a trip down the River to River trail in Southern IL in during early March. This was the maiden voyage of the wonderful 20* long Zeppelin with 2ozs overstuff that you crafted for me. The weather turned for the worse on that Friday afternoon but we waited out some severe storms and the shuttle dropped us off at 8PM for a late hike into the planned 1st night stop. Temps that night dipped into the mid/high 30's and I got a good test at learning to adjust the UQ just right. The next night temps dropped to the low 30's/high 20's, the water froze in the nalgenes and I stayed cozy and toasty all night without the need for lots of extra items to pack. I love the extra width how it wraps me up!
One of my buddies on that trip used an attempt at a PLUQ with insultex that failed him and he is about ready to call you up after seeing the Zep. I am saving up for a Flight Jacket to round out the package. Thank you for a well built item and comfort on the trail!
Got my TQ today. 0* black outer/olive brown inner. Took some quick shots with my 20* Zepplin UQ, been raining all day. Will head out soon and will post more pics of them in action. Thanks again Paul.
Great pictures everyone, thanks for taking the time to post them... I'm working hard getting those orders out in the mail...
